Let's make things happen.

 

I am a librarian, researcher, writer, information literacy activist/archivist/architect, feminist, product and growth marketer, and believer in Open Information, the Open Web, and storytelling and marketing for community change. I have capabilities in product, nonprofits, UX, growth, and email marketing and branding.

I've worked as the Communications Manager for Creative Commons since 2016, and before that I was the Product Engagement Manager for Safari Books Online/O'Reilly Media. My positions within these organizations have focused on content, product, usability, and community. In 2013, I started my life in tech working at Mozilla on the Community Building Team. Before that, I spent 6 years in libraries and archives managing the Bascom Lamar Lunsford project at Columbia University, serving as Collections Assistant and Translator for a museum of animal anatomy in Berlin, and working in a number of library positions including reference, metadata and cataloging, and archival processing and reference.

I love process and product-based lenses – I have an excellent eye for marketing copy and a strong background in documentation and product. As a marketer and nonprofit specialist, I get results – I've grown email lists, written product and UX strategy, redesigned marketing websites, and increased traffic and sales through content and community. My campaigns are effective because they work – I'm a results oriented professional with a passion for getting it all done.

As a freelancer, I'm currently working with MIT Co-Lab, SAGE Publishing, and the SEIU to produce a book series on racial justice.

I sit on the board of JP Cohousing, a multicultural, mixed income community in Jamaica Plain, MA.

In my free time, I like to read, write, make things, go to museums and theater, and take bike rides and hikes.
